Sequencing Section (SQC)


The mission of the section is to promote advances in biological science by providing researchers with genomic analyses that utilize the latest and most advanced technologies.

User Satisfaction Survey

We are always looking to improve our services, and we recognize that your feedback is essential to this. As part of this process, we have created a survey and would like to ask you to answer some questions. It will take about 5-10 minutes. Your cooperation would be greatly appreciated. The results will be analyzed and shared with you at a later date.

We offer OIST researchers Sequencing services in a wide range of sequencing applications including de novo genome sequencing, re-sequencing, RNA sequencing, ChIP-sequencing, etc. Please see the "Service List" page for more information.

Currently, we house the following sequencers: Illumina NovaSeq6000, Illumina MiSeq, PacBio Sequel IIe, Oxford Nanopore MinION, and Oxford Nanopore PromethION. Please see the "Sequencing Platforms" page for more information.

We help researchers with their project planning, library preparation, and sequencing.

We also manage capillary sequencers, real-time PCR, etc. for common use. Please see "Common Equipment" page for the equipment list and the rules regarding use.

Sequencing Schedule

In principle, we will proceed in the order of Request IDs on a first-come-first-served basis. Sequencing-only requests are completed earlier than the other request IDs, and this may cause the IDs to be back and forth. (Sequencing-only requests are marked ★ on the calendar.) And, we will sort the same applications with close request IDs and proceed all at once, there may be times when data is submitted back and forth.
